About the DB18 denim:

This material was made specifically for Denim Bridge on an old TOYODA shuttle loom at a mill in Okayama Prefecture in Japan. It is an unsanforized (loom state) material.

The Material:
Vertical fading, often seen on vintage jeans, is desirable to many denim enthusiasts. To achieve this effect, many mills in Japan will lower the tension of the warp (lengthwise) thread during the weaving process. While resulting in vertical fading characteristics, this often results a looser, non-uniform twill.

For this denim, the desire was to keep a tighter, consistent twill while still getting vertical fades. The DB18 denim is woven evenly with a clean twill, but the warp thread will become more exposed after washing, resulting in a texture more prone to vertical fading. The tighter weave also allows creases to better form in the material, resulting in higher contrast fades the longer the jeans are worn.

Selvedge ID:
The selvedge of the DB Denim also pays homage to the vintage jeans of yesteryear. The ID thread is a barely visible, faded pink color that mimics the faded ID thread seen in well broken-in pairs of jeans.

Another special thing about this denim is the selvedge ID thread is not the same on both ends of the fabric. Seen in very rare cases of vintage jeans,
the accent ID thread runs though the center of the white selvege threads on one end of the material, while the ID thread runs right next to the indigo threads on the other. This was recreated with our original denim.
